Because I want to be fair and nice, I am featuring Patrick S. Fernandez’s site, because I also featured Kitty’s and Irish’s.
Same content as theirs, just a little more savvy and upbeat, and I like this layout better than the other two; sorry Kitty and Irish.
If I come across another classmate of theirs, I shall post it too, for fairness’ sake. :p
In other news, if you think this description/blurb fits you:
This site is for anyone and everyone who has graduated college and been thurst into harsh reality called the real world. What do you do? Where do you go? How do you adjust? Most importantly–is your life over? No!
Then this site might interest you. Upbeat writing, interesting thoughts, I think this blog has potential.
Excerpts after the jump.
Excerpts from So you just graduated… :
College. The best 3, 4, 5, 7, or however many years of your life. Perhaps. You learn everything from geography of the world to chemistry to communications to business to art to religious studies to political science to sociology, etc….the list goes on! However, I’d like to think that many of us were not taught at length about how to adjust to the real world. Period. Here are a few questions many of us may have often pondered as graduation crept closer: How do we know where we want to move post graduation? After years of education, are we even sure of what career path we would like to follow? How will I be able to afford living on my own (if you haven’t experienced that yet previously)?
We often hear of a mid-life crisis, but I’d like to talk about the idea behind what Abby Miller and Cathy Stocker have coined the ‘quarter life crisis’–well, okay not as dramatic as it sounds–but more so the crisis many people find themselves at in their 20’s essentially. You hear rumors that we may have 10 jobs before we’re 30. You worry about finding the love of your life if you have not already found him or her in college. You may be scared that you will not live up to siblings, parents, or friends success or expectations.
As I stood inevitably crying my eyes about upon leaving my dear friends from college, one friend said to me, ” Ya know, when you leave high school, we felt this same way–that things would never be okay and they were. Now, we’re leaving again, and we feel as though things will never be okay again, and they will”.
Stay tuned for more…
